ReadSpike v2 – news aggregator

We soft launched some time in 2013 mostly for ourselves, but more and more people are heading about it and users are growing daily.

With more users comes feedback, mostly useful! Readspike v2 now uses localstorage to remember column states and we’ve added a re/code feed as requested.

We have updated the logo and removed a load of cruft like the google search and the contact form as they were hardly used.

We also spent a lot of time optimising the page, and it now renders in 343 milliseconds! We inlined all the .svg images and minified and concatenated all the jQuery and CSS so it should be blistering fast on any device.

Check it out!
